Skills For Employment
Are you looking for a job, and need learn new skills to progress?
Our free Adult Skills programmes are the answer.
You may have left school with no qualifications at all, or you may have learnt all your skills on the job. One thing is certain though, whatever your current skills, you will need more in the future.
Acquiring new skills and qualifications is a great way to advance your career, but there are also financial benefits. For most people, a future with better prospects and a bigger income is in their hands.
Our short, highly focused programmes will quickly give you the skills demanded by employers.
We match you to job vacancies and give you the guidance and support to make that critical first impression. Our programmes focus on equipping you with the real practical workplace skills, companies want – this puts you at ahead in the race because you achieve the qualifications they recognise.
They're available to anyone aged 19+ and living in Birmingham or Coventry, and our courses are designed around skills needed now – in high demand, well paid sectors like Construction, Engineering and Digital. We work with large local employers who are recruiting– our customised courses give you the skills they want, work experience to prove yourself and a final job interview.
All delivered locally and flexibly to fit in with your commitments.
And It Works!
Last year we helped over 2600 West Midlands residents gain new skills to help them into a secure job with real prospects and trained over 4000 Adult Apprentices in more than 1200 employers. Through this, 82% of our learners gained a promotion or a pay rise and 93% of our learners would recommend us to a friend or colleague.
